Insulate your property

Insulating your property is one of the ways you can save money on heat escaping. Without proper insulation in the roof, loft areas, or wall drafts can get in and precious heat can radiate out of your home. This makes you want to use more energy by cranking the heat up. However, installed insulation can keep the heat inside your home. Helping you use less energy overall. 

Consider alternative heating solutions

Many people tend to use radiators and heaters to keep their homes warm in the colder months. However, sometimes these options don’t circulate the heat well enough. Making you want to use up more energy by increasing the temperature of the heating. However, some of the best indoor heating options are often the ones that you don’t consider. Things like underfloor heating and fireplaces often can circulate the heat better in a home, while using less energy. 

Replace old windows and doors

Many people have older windows on their property but this can be your biggest waste of money when it comes to energy bills. That is because heat can escape through them very easily and drafts can enter your home. This is why you should consider more energy-efficient windows which could save you money in the long run. Double glazing and UPVC fittings can be a great solution to create a more energy-efficient home. 

Utilise the way you dress your window space

Blinds and curtains aren’t just for decoration. They can have a positive effect on your energy bills. This is because drawn curtains and blinds can often keep heat from escaping, and also stop a room from warming up in the summer months. Keeping the rooms cool and dark can save on your use of air conditioning.

Consider solar panels

Adding solar panels to your property is an alternative way to generate energy in the home. From powering your lamps and lights through to heating your hot water for a shower. They can be a one-stop solution to reducing your energy bills once and for all. 

Save rainwater

Finally, many of us use a lot of water during the summer months. Especially for things like watering your plants and lawn. This is where having a rainwater tank can be helpful, and save you money. It allows you to make use of water that would be wasted otherwise. 

I hope this guide helps you create a more energy-efficient home. Saving you more money each month on your energy bills.
